How do I use my Lomography Experimental Lens Set to do multiple exposures?

The Lomography Experimental Lens Kit in-lens shutter system allows you to shoot photos in a totally different way than it it was possible before with your Micro 4/3 camera. Finally you will be able to shoot real mutliple exposures and sequenced shots on your digital camera.

Here are the steps:

Step One

Press the T-shutter lever down on your lens to the open position until it’s locked in.

Step Two

Set your Micro 4/3 camera to ‘Bulb’ (B shutter) mode. If there is no Bulb mode on your camera, you can instead select a long exposure speed manually (for example 2 or 3 seconds).

Step Three

Set your lens shutter to either N or B depending on your shooting conditions.

Step Four

Focus and compose your photo using the focusing ring on your lens. The magnifying function on your Micro 4/3 camera may help for precise focusing.

Step Five

Once your finished focusing close the lens-shutter by switching the T-shutter lever. Now you won’t be able to see anything on your LCD display or electronic viewfinder.

Step Six

Fire the camera shutter (in B mode) and hold it open so your camera is ready to capture your photo. If you don’t have B but a certain exposure time set, this will be your time window to use the lens shutter and take pictures.

Step Seven

Fire the lens shutter with your other hand to take the picture as many times as you want. When you are finished end the bulb mode or wait for the set exposure time to end.

Step Eight

Enjoy your multiple exposure shot!
